1. Stand with Heritage

The crisis we conservatives have been warning the country about for decades is upon us. It is happening in this generation . . . in this Congress . . . and the results could be catastrophic.Simply put, if we don’t get a handle on stopping the explosion of spending, debt, and the size of government NOW, we may never get another chance. The red ink will be too great, and America might never be the same.And the question I pose to you as a conservative in 2011 is this:What are you going to do about it?I know what I’m doing—Red State, my CNN gig, my talk show . . . and more.But one of the absolutely most important and strategically effective moves I’m making to avert disaster is supporting The Heritage Foundation . . . and asking gung-ho conservatives like you to support them with me.Will you?Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. The Undefeated

Steve Bannon and the fine folks at CRC Public Relations sent me an advanced copy of The Undefeated to watch over this past weekend.I curled up in a comfortable chair in the home studio and fired up the movie.To give you a sense of the movie — more a documentary — the film came about with Governor Palin’s desire to give a full account of her tenure as Governor of Alaska and beyond without the all too frequent anti-Palin bias that exists within parts of the media.Already, some leftwing bloggers are others are comparing it to Hitler’s Triumph of the Will.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. So and so is the true RINO

So and so has changed positions on more issues than my favorite candidate. Sure, my favorite candidate has changed positions as well, but their changes were the result of experience and wisdom gained while my favorite candidate went through their singularly unique path to the presidency. Reagan is a good example.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. What is the difference between the SEIU & an armed robber?

That’s a rhetorical question.However, after seeing this L.A. Times passage from last month, one might come to the conclusion that 1) an armed robber usually only has one victim (whereas, the SEIU has millions), 2) an average armed robber does not have politicians in his back pocket, and 3) an armed robber is more intellectually honest—at least he tells you he’s robbing you, where as the SEIU…well, read it for yourself.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. NY Teachers’ Union & NAACP Fight to Keep African-American Kids in Failing Schools

Let’s start with the problem: In Harlem (NY), according to the Wall Street Journal, at one elementary school, only 3% of the students perform at grade level English, and only 9% in Math. At the Columbus High School the graduation rate is an abysmal 40%, compared to a citywide average of 63%. These figures are from only two of 22 failing schools that need to be shut down.Please click here for the rest of the post.
